If you are planning on being away from the School of Medicine for more than 12 weeks, you will need to go on an official Leave of Absence. It can be a leave for graduate studies, research, medical, personal or administrative reasons. Before going on any of these leaves, you will need to have a Leave of Absence meeting with the registrar, clerkship and electives coordinator, financial aid officer and the health and safety coordinator. These meeting can be arranged by either calling 962-8335 or coming to 1001 Bondurant Hall to set an appropriate time.

*Please note that a request for a Leave of Absence must be approved by the Associate Dean for Student Affairs.
